Agave scabra

Agave scabra is a medium-sized agave valued for its architectural form and bluish-green to gray-green leaves which are viciously armed on the margins and tips. It is known as the "rough" agave due to the rough texture of the undersides of the leaves. The species ranges from Texas south through Mexico to the Pacific Ocean and from 500' elevation to 6,500' so provenance of parent plants is most likely important to determine hardiness.

Agave scabra is one of the most ornamental species of agave due to its lovely coloring and large size. It needs full sun and a warm position to thrive and its arching branches are showy in a dry garden or mingled with softer perennials and grasses.



compact rosette of narrow linear, incurving leaves, light green, at margins fine splitting threads; inflorescence to 9 feet tall.
